Threat Modelling for Developers training course

A "World Class" course - Learn how to identify Vulnerabilities and tackle them with Threat Models.

4.8 out of 5 average

(see feedback)


Threat modelling is a process to identify security weaknesses in software design and architecture, and define countermeasures that mitigate the malicious effects of the discovered weaknesses before any code is cut.
Our training course is designed for software developers and architects in mind. Threat modelling is language-agnostic. It can be easily used for any software development project and with any modern workflow such as Agile or DevOps. The analysis work is done on the design of the software system in order to improve the quality of the code that will be delivered in-sprint.
You will learn how to address security design concerns faced by software development teams with a combination of teaching modules and practical threat model exercises. The participants will be encouraged to work in teams, to foster discussions on how to implement security controls for the modelled threats on their software architecture.
All key stakeholders in an application development workflow should know how to assess the weak points in their systems and what questions to ask. The course will provide a framework to assess these questions and will yield immediate beneficial results.
This JBI training course uses the Rapid Threat Model Prototyping (RTMP) methodology.  RTMP enables a development team to seamlessly integrate threat modelling with existing Agile / DevOps workflows.
You will gain a practical overview of the necessary disciplines for resolving application architecture and design issues according to OWASP good security practices.
We aim to instill skills that allow you to perform rapid threat modelling in a consistent, repeatable and measurable manner.

• The main recipients for the course are security subject-matter experts,  technical non-security professionals who have no/little experience of threat modelling (e.g. software devs, architects and engineers) and technically-oriented project leaders.

• The purpose of the course is to deliver the concept of threat modelling and to be able to complete a basic threat model using the Rapid Threat Model Prototyping methodology.

• By the end of the course, the class will understand threats, mitigations and risk rankings and will be able to use basic threat modelling techniques to drastically improve secure design of software.

• The course will enable participants to integrate RTMP into any software development process.

Security focused Developers and software architects.

The target audience for this course are developers and architects who have identified themselves as wanting to take on the role of security champion; they will probably have minimal experience in security risk assessments and threat modelling. The course will provide a strong baseline of knowledge in these areas.

"The topics (threat modelling frameworks, zones of trust, annotating your own diagrams, implementing security into Agile practices) were all well-chosen and appropriate. I particular like to learn about the theory of applying security practices into Agile workflow.

The instructor was excellent. Great communicator, warm, affable personality"
